The Feinberg Feed – Will it be The Hurt Locker or Avatar


On this week’s edition of “The Feinberg Feed,” Scott tries to sort through the mess of the race created by the precursors, which have hardly agreed on a thing! As he discusses in-depth: the festival circuit went for “Precious” (Sundance and Toronto); actors went for “Inglourious Basterds” (SAG); the critics split between “The Hurt Locker” (NYFCC, LAFCA, NSFC) and “Up in the Air” (NBR); and the fans sided wholeheartedly with “Avatar” (HFPA, box-office, etc.). Who, then, has the edge?

Well, based on last Sunday’s shocking upset win by “The Hurt Locker” over “Avatar” at the PGA Awards, one has to give Kathryn Bigelow’s Iraq war film the benefit of the doubt. But, with Oscar nominations only a week away, a lot of people will turn to Saturday evening’s DGA Awards — which are probably the most accurate of all the Oscar bellwethers, having picked the director of the eventual Oscar winner for best picture on all but 16 occasions over the past 61 years — for the best indication of who will be out front after Oscar nominations are finally revealed bright and early on Tuesday morning!
